and a number of pro gun democrats including the senate majority leader harry reid who does not seem enthusiastic at the start of the debate right now. realistically, what do you think the most is that we can get out of this in terms of gun control laws? >> not that much. the orders are incremental and they will make some difference. they are not going to solve the problem as it is diagnosed. i don't see action in the congress. i wouldn't be surprised about a fig leaf measure and congress wants to show they did something that is toothless. i think that might be a realistic option. i don't think you will see very much in the way of the package the president proposed unless public opinion does seem to be moving a little bit. after the other big shootings, you don't see sentiment in favor of gun control. if the president wants to keep driving this and followed through more than i and other people predicted he would, keep the public pressure off now and mayor bloomberg is determined to do that. that's in the cover story. maybe then you get real pressure on the members and see action. rig

at least that harry reid is not going to make his democrats who are up in 2014 walk the plank on a tough gun vote. so the house guys are saying look, we'll take it up when reid passes it knowing full well there's a small chance that larry reedye harry reid is going to pass a robust bill. if you saw some of the comments this past week from senators like max baucus, mary landrieu, mark begich who are up next year, you see why a lot of the house republicans are sort of smiling and saying we'll take it up when it comes over from the senate, wink, wink. >> gene, i guess it's going to be quite a while before i download profiles of courage volume 2 from the united states senate? >> i think it's going to be a while. look, it's been a month since newtown. and i think it's -- i think you make the case, it's unconscionable to do nothing, right, until the next newtown. i think there's a resonance out in the country. i think people get that this is something we really need to address and get it on an emotional level. but no, you're not going to be reading the updated profiles in courage out of the se
have the senate. go ahead, harry reid, bring it up for a vote. are you in favor of all president obama's recommendations? pass it through the senate first and let the house do it. that would be interesting if he does that. i think he was an nra backed candidate, too,be if i'm not mistaken. >> greg: do i have time to throw to the sot? we're doing it in the next block? great to be back. >> dana: people talking to you in your head. >> greg: it's happening again. i have to get out of here. coming up, should a reality show that features one father who has 11 kids with ten different women called beckel be on television? we told you about --be go ahead. >> two boys, you know, take responsibility. you can hate all you want to. i didn't ask for it. i just happened. >> greg: we told you about "all my babies' mommas" last weekbe but the network changed its mind about the show. tragically. we'll tell you what they have planned ahead. ♪ ♪ >> announcer: meet jill. she thought she'd feel better after seeing her doctor. and she might have, if not for kari, the identity thief stole jill's social se

"b." ten others received "a" by the nra. kimberly, if the people are getting "as" and "b"s by the nra do you think they will vote to change the constitution in the way president obama wants them to? >> kimberly: absolutely not. the nra poke the cage and super mad. this is all out war. they are not taking it sitting down. tremendous support. record number of people joining, giving money. look at the number of gun sales, ammunition sales. everything that is going on. thaw have this in their respect. if they want to hold on to the position, they have to tread carefully. >> bob: the same nra that used obama's children disgustingly. max baucus, i did his first campaign for the united states senate. he is from montana. i understand -- >> kimberly: did he win? >> bob: obviously, he wouldn't be up there. >> kimberly: you brought him in? >> bob: i did. that is not the point. baucus will vote against more than ten bullets in the clip. >> dana: they will never have a chance to vote on it. >> eric: i 100%, 1,000% agree. i don't think reid has the cojones to bring it to the se

on inside that inaugural luncheon where the president is sitting down with harry reid and john boehner and talking with evan bahy over the weekend, i'm sure they took the sharp objects off the table and have a food taster. and one said, don't worry, my vice chair lamar alexander will be sitting between them to make sure things are civil. all joking aside, they thought this is going to be a good luncheon and everybody will be professional and the big battles of course, will come tomorrow. and don't forget that hillary clinton is also, secretary of state going to be testifying on benghazi on wednesday. that will be another big event that happens here on capitol hill. now, to the parade, we can pan off just a little bit and you can see that some folks have gathered here at the beginning of the parade, quite a bit different than it was at least at this point from 2009, where people were 20, 30 deep along the parade route. we'll probably see that, and looks like people, five, six people deep headed down constitution avenue. we make the turn on to pennsylvania avenue and then a slow crawl up
. the house or senate members. it's because they have constituents that support and control, like harry reid's district, so it's a major issue. i believe the background checks at the gun shows, i believe that could pass congress without using executive action. but the fear is there for the people. george bush did it as well, but we have to relinquish the fear. i think, by going through congress and getting it passed by congress, it will be less drama and try to strip funding from the atf through congress, through the continuing resolution. host: do you think if president obama does executive orders, the that poisoned the well for even the background checks, let alone the assault weapons ban? caller: the background checks, there are federal background checks already, so he may expand that law. host: take a look at what the washington post says president obama is expected to say later this morning. background checks for all firearms buyers, as did the assault weapons and high capacity ammunition clips. some of those or most of those would have to be done through congress. but perhaps he does s
. majority leader harry reid and speaker john boehner appear to be in a game of legislative chicken. boehner's spokesman released a statement after the president's speech saying, simply, house committees of jurisdiction will review these recommendations and if the senate passes a bill, we will also take a look at that. reid, of course, who has already said the senate will only consider legislation that can pass the house said in a very vague, carefully-worded statement yesterday, quote, i am committed to ensuring that the senate will consider can legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year. reid, of course, has home state politics to worry about, as well as keeping a number of red state democrats in line. many of them are up for re-election in 2014. potentially vulnerable. montana senator max baucus responded to the senate in a statement, quote, before passing new laws, we need a debate that respects responsible, law-abiding gun owners in montana instead of a one-size-fits-all directives from washington. joe manchin said, quote, i'm di
in years, and you know, it goes to the senate and it goes to senate majority leader harry reid and we'll see what they do. but first, john boehner has to get his folks on board in the house. >> andy, carrie, good to see both of you. thanks. >> thank you. >>> boy, it was a stunning way to cap off the inaugural festivities. the president and first lady sharing a dance at the inaugural ball of course, to "let's stay together" performed by jennifer hudson. she sang this song earlier at the commander-in-chief's ball. mrs. obama wore that amazing red dress by jason wu. her outfit will now go to the national archives. she actually took time out of her night to tweet just danced to "let's stay together" with the love of my life and the president of the united states. i'm so proud of barack. with the spark miles card from capital one, thor gets great rewards for his small business! your boa!

. harry reid has said he's not going to bring anything up in the senate that can't get through the house on your side. steny hoyer isn't sounding optimistic about an assault weapons ban. what's your assessment right now? what's realistic here? >> my assessment is that we should push forward on everything that makes sense from a public safety perspective and let the politics work itself out. but the american public deserves an up or down vote on these issues in the house of representatives. if people want to vote against some of these common sense measures, that's fine, but let the voters hold them accountable. so what we're going to be asking for here in the house of representatives is simply the opportunity to have a vote, let the american people see how their representatives stand on some of these important issues, because as i said earlier, i think the vast majority of the american people support these common sense steps and that's the one way to hold members of congress accountable. put it to the test, put it to a vote. don't say in advance that because these things may not get a maj

for that. to the speaker of the house and nancy pelosi, to democratic leader harry reid as well as republican leader, mitch mcconnell and to all the congressional leaders and all the members of congress who are here. i recognize that democracy is not always easy, i recognize there are profound differences in this room. but i just want to say thank you for your service and thank your families for their service, because regardless of our political persuasions and perspectives i know that all of us serve because we believe that we can make america for future generations. and i'm confident that we can act at this moment in a way that makes a difference for our children and our children's children. i know that former president carter, president clinton, they understand the irony of the presidential office, which is the longer you're there the more humble you become. and the more mindful you are that it is beyond your powers individually to move this great country. you can only do it because you have extraordinary partners. and a spirit of goodwill and most of all because of the stren
here. first of all, there was a lot of talk about harry reid, a senate majority leader, who's a gun owner. he's from the gun rights state of nevada. he has been very cautious saying that the senate should be cautious, but my understanding from talking to a number of sources is that he's speaking for himself but he's also speaking from the perspective of political reality, that there are a number of people in his caucus who would potentially really get slammed for supporting anything. so that's why he wants to take it slow. he doesn't want his people to walk the plank and suddenly not be the senate majority, lose the majority. but the other thing i think is really important to keep in mind is just how different this is. kind of taking it up to 5,000 or 10,000 feet. i cannot tell you how many times after so many of these tragedies, after one of their own gabby giffords was shot, calling up senate democratic sources saying, are you going to do anything? nope. nothing's changed. after aurora, nope, nothing's changed. n newtown changed the dialogue, the decision at the white house and he
just mentioned, martha, it has been almost four years since harry reid and the democrats have passed a budget. i think there is a larger point here. everybody in washington, especially the democrats, are celebrating the republicans blinked here and there is no question they blinked in the showdown with the president and are giving him another three-month debt extension. you know the real problem and i just want to make this point, the problem isn't whether we are going to have a debt limit showdown, the problem is that we are borrowing $16.4 trillion. all we are doing here, martha to be realistic about it is we are saying, coach doing what you're doing, we are going to keep borrowing at the same pace. this is not a solution. martha: matt, i look at this i feel like every time there is a so-called deadline we all know that the deadlines are so squishy and congress always figures out some way not to have to feel with the deadline and live in the real world and get the work done. i think people are sick to death of this. >> we've almost become numb to it i think. last year when this was
